Notes and Editorial Reviews

Lounge music - popular tunes once frequently heard by customers of restaurants, bars and exclusive clubs - has recently experienced a resurgence in popularity. But these tunes were not the only fare heard by the cocktail crowd. The more upscale establishments often featured classical music. With this in mind, Delos offers a collection of classical bon-bons appropriate for any occasion, with or without cocktails. Most of the music is intimate in nature - piano, harp, and duet. All of it is sure to enhance the atmosphere of any kind of social gathering.
